History Museum Building – Genevieve Block
$4,400,000.00 for the purchase of land for the locating of a Historical Museum upon portions of the property known as 135 and 175 East Broadway Avenue (the Café Genevieve Block). Following the purchase, the remaining funds will be used for relocation of historic structures and artifacts, including the rehabilitation of those structures, construction of one or more new structures and related site improvements on the site, and designing, planning, engineering, constructing, and/or furnishing of the Historical Museum building and site. In the event the Café Genevieve Block property is not acquired and approved for location of a Historical Museum, the funds will be used for the purchase and development of land, relocation and rehabilitation of historic structures and construction of one or more new structures and related site improvements, at such alternative location as may be approved jointly by the Jackson Town Council and Teton County Board of County Commissioners.

Vote YES for history.
The Jackson Hole Historical Society and Museum has been preserving and showcasing the valley’s colorful history for more than sixty years. However, without a permanent home, we risk losing a treasured venue to connect people to place by fostering an appreciation for Teton County’s heritage and cultural traditions. These funds will help relocate the Historical Museum to the Café Genevieve Block, a fitting historical location, preserving our history for future generations.
